Verizon DEFEND

Maintain Your Website’s Uptime with Revolutionary, Flexible Technology

DEFEND focuses on your website’s uptime by protecting you from distributed denial-of-service (DDoS), web application and direct-to-customer origin attacks.

Our proprietary approaches and revolutionary technology enable us to identify and mitigate DDoS attacks within two minutes. Our intelligent, real-time monitoring and detection mitigates 99 percent of DDoS attacks within 60 seconds of identification. Anti-DDoS protection is built on a reverse-proxy architecture and features port lock down.

Origin cloaking offers additional security through origin firewalling, ensuring that only our Internet Protocol (IP) addresses are allowed to contact the consumer origin.

An optional comprehensive, cloud-based Web Application Firewall (WAF) is deployed through all of Verizon’s CDN Points of Presence (PoPs) and helps protect your web applications and sites. It features:

  • A web portal with an unparalleled level of granular control.
  • WAF rule updates that are applied globally in two to five minutes.
  • Inbound inspection of HTTP or HTTPS traffic to identify and help protect against malicious payloads and specific attacks
  • Control: Set almost any combination of rules to tell WAF precisely what traffic to inspect against, if at all
  • Freedom: Professional services are an option — NOT a requirement.
